    • Wainwright (elbow) was activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Reds. As expected, Wainwright will rejoin the Cardinals ahead of their series opener with the Reds. The 36-year-old struggled out of the rotation prior to injuring his elbow, compiling a 5.12 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 23 starts, so the Cards will transition him to a bullpen role for the remainder of the season. Jack Flaherty will remain in the rotation in his place.

    • Cardinals' President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak stated Sunday that Wainwright (elbow) will likely pitch out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season following his activation from the DL, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Wainwright is expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday, at which point he'll enter the Cardinals' bullpen for the remainder of the 2017 season. The 36-year-old struggled out of the rotation this season, posting a 5.12 ERA over his 23 starts. Wainwright's transition to the bullpen will open up an opportunity for Jack Flaherty to remain the starting rotation moving forward.

    • Wainwright (elbow) is expected to be activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday against the Reds, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Wainwright reported Sunday that everything went well during his recent simulated game and that he's now aiming for a Tuesday return from the DL. He said that he'll work out of the Cardinals' bullpen upon his activation, with the date of his first start back in the rotation still to be determined.

    • Wainwright (elbow) threw a bullpen session Thursday and estimated he hit 90 mph, David Solomon of 550 KTRS radio reports. He's next scheduled for a bullpen session Saturday or Sunday. The right-hander seems to be on track for a return, perhaps within the next week. Wainwright may only be limited to one or two starts the rest of the way, however, and his eroding skills make him an uninviting mixed-league starter anyway. Of course, desperate streamer times could call for the measure of adding him for a dart at a win and some strikeouts.

    • Wainwright (elbow) will throw his second bullpen session Thursday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Wainwright threw his first bullpen Tuesday and manager Mike Matheny announced Wednesday that the veteran did not feel any adverse effects a day later. Consequently, he's slated to put in another session Thursday, as he inches closer to a return after a multi-week absence.
